Deadfall Adventures FPS Linux Beta Released

By - | Views: 11,788
Linux now has another good looking first person shooter, Deadfall Adventures has just entered beta!

We reported on this to you before, so it should be no surprise to GOL readers, to those who don't remember, surprise!

QuoteHello,

All customers of Deadfall Adventures should now have access to the Linux depot. This is not a beta version since we need especially feedback on a wide variety of hardware configurations.
We are actively monitoring feedback and will provide if possible regular updates.

Here is a list of known issues:
==================================
KNOWN ISSUES

Please note that these issues are temporary and being worked upon!

* Loading indicator (spinner) does not show.
This means the game will not always give you visual feedback that it is
still working behind the scenes. We appreciate your patience!
* The game is playable, but may stutter with AMD's Catalyst (fglrx) drivers.
This is due to workaround for a bug in the driver. AMD engineers are
working to fix it.
* The game is memory-heavy and can be somewhat unstable on Intel HD graphics.
* Loading times are slow because of shader compilations.
* Game controllers have no force feedback.
* There are graphical corruptions in the menu level.
* On some combinations of hardware, drivers and graphics settings levels there
may be more graphical corruptions.
Should this happen, please try playing around with the video options.
* Game is not network-compatible with the Windows version yet.
* Anti-aliasing does not work.

Have fun!

Great game. Broken English though ;). "This is not a beta version since we need especially feedback on a wide variety of hardware configurations."

I wonder at which point it will count as a Linux sale?
